Enjoy the beauty of nature by having a beach wedding. Let the sight of the waves and the sound of the breeze enchant you and your guests.

A garden wedding is one of the most relaxing wedding themes because it involves the elements of nature-trees, flowers, birds, etc. When you say garden themed wedding, it doesn’t necessarily need to be held in a garden. If you don’t have a garden or you can’t afford to rent a garden space, you can have it indoors and transform the place into a garden by making use of lovely flowers. If you are lucky to bring it outdoors, don’t make the mistake of using metal chairs for your guests because they easily heat up under the sun.

When you mention the word Asian, the first two countries that come to mind are Japan and China. Having no Asian roots cannot stop you from experiencing their rich culture-that includes the wedding traditions. Each Asian country has a distinct traditional wedding dress for the bride. In China, they call it cheong sam- the form fitting red Chinese dress with beautiful dragon and phoenix designs. In Japan, they have formal wedding kimono which is made of white silk. If you don’t like to stick to the traditional Asian wedding dress because it may look queer on you, you can mix it with Western touch. Remember to style your hair with chopsticks. For the food, you can serve Japanese sushi, chicken teriyaki, wonton soup, California maki and pot stickers among others. Don’t miss to serve the Japanese rice wine called sake. Use bear grass, orchids, and lilies for your flower decorations.

Aside from those mentioned above, you can have a fairytale wedding, a picnic wedding, a Halloween wedding and many other wedding theme ideas. It’s nice to be unique. Just make sure your novel ideas won’t compromise the comfort of your guests and yours as well.
